Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz (By: Miyagi)
The Jazz suffered a heavy loss (122-90) in the first game and it is not clear how optimistic they could be ahead of this one. One of the keys to their failure was their bench's contribution of just 18 points! Korver and Neto played just 10 minutes, they did not score a single field goal and they did not seem fit yet. Crowder struggled deeply for the field (1-9 FG) as well as Sefolosha (1-6 FG) and O'Neale (1-5 FG).
I don't think miracles will happen and the Jazz's bench will struggle again tonight but this time they will be more prepared for that and in terms of betting, the edge is with their starters here. Ingles had a quiet night the other day, he took way less than his average attempts (0-1 2P, 1-3 3P) and that was a concern for the Jazz. Today, they will need a lot more of him and his long-range shots against the Rockets and it seems quite certain to me that he won't hesitate to shoot the ball from distance.
Ingles scores on average a bit over 3 3Pointers per game over the last couple of months, while he has scored at least 3 threes in 3 of his 4 meetings with the Rockets for the regular season. It should n't be questioned that Ingles will take lots of threes today and it remains to be seen how many of those he will score but I expect him to make at least 3.
